Alan Rogers Review

Ounaskoski Camping is situated almost exactly on the Arctic Circle, 66 degrees north and just 8 km. south of the Santa Claus post office and village, on the banks of the Kemijoki river. The site has 153 marked touring pitches, 72 with 10A electricity, plus a further small area for tents. Rovaniemi attracts many visitors each year, especially in the weeks leading up to Christmas, who fly direct to the local airport and pay Santa Claus a visit. The town has much to offer with a good selection of shops and some restaurants. Reindeer meat is well worth trying!

Not to be missed is the Artikum Museum where you will learn much of how people in the North live with nature and on her terms. Slightly further afield you can visit Vaattunkiköngäs and enjoy one of the many walks, which are suitable for everyone, from the 1 km. walk to the most challenging 9 km. path. Alternatively sit back and enjoy the summer sun on the riverbank.


There are two sanitary buildings each providing toilets, showers, laundry and kitchen. One also houses a sauna. Facilities for disabled visitors. Motorhome services. Café. Small kiosk. Playground. Fishing. Organised coach trips. WiFi throughout (charged).
